I am a fan of nonfiction, among other genres. I’m a recent convert to this one, but I’m officially hooked. I was thinking about all the reasons why I liked it recently, since I pretty much avoided it for so long. These are the reasons I came up with -- and some of them are kind of weird.

I think there’s a lot of realism in most fiction, even if it’s fantastical. However, memoirs and biographies have a kind of real rawness novels don’t have. I think it’s because in nonfiction, you know it actually happen -- unless, you know, someone’s lying about their memoir.
